Live and Conquer
With our second installation in our Mini Market series on its way, we are so excited to feature some of the incredible talent coming this June to Chicago. Today we are featuring Chicago jewelry designer, Live and Conquer.
Cheyenne Raduha is the designer behind Live and Conquer. Recently, Cheyenne created her Into the Mystic collection, which was inspired by the “reawakening of a spring within the soul and the restless adventures that take place in summer.” We absolutely love this description and find it fitting for Cheyenne’s beautiful work.
We love this Taos Southwestern Metal Bangle, inspired by the beautiful landscape of Taos New Mexico.
Cheyenne attributes her desire for good craftsmanship from growing up on a farm and learning how to be a diligent worker. She prides herself in making things well. Cheyenne hopes that the quality of her craft and the beauty of her work will be handed down to the next generation. A passion for conversation and ecology also influences how and where she sources her materials, always keeping Live and Conquer’s environmental footprint in mind when designing and constructing her jewelry pieces.
Peaking into Cheyenne’s studio space it becomes quite clear that she surrounds herself with inspirations from nature. We love the beautiful artwork and little curiosities displayed in her home.
We are so excited to see Live and Conquer’s hand-forged jewelry in person at our Mini Market in Chicago! Be sure to check out the Live and Conquer Website, Etsy, and Tumblr. Plus, keep up with Cheyenne’s daily inspirations on Twitter and Instagram. See you all next week!
